Well I'm sadly lacking on anything riveting to blather on about right now, so I give you these:
And ewwww, look at all that dust on the darn thing!
ABOVE: A sweet moment in his madness... You will see what I mean in the next photo!
ABOVE: Proving HE IS HIS FATHER'S SON.
I only got ONE knitting block done yesterday, but I was thrilled with it because:
ABOVE: FINALLY!!! A Chevron Pattern that works! Now that I've found it, I won't lose it.
Someone thought I was making a Pattern Book or some such thing, and that gave me the idea...
ABOVE: to actually make one. Thanks whoever it was.
Seeing as I have been trying out all sorts of knitting patterns, it seems a sensible thing to do.
Right, I might just go and get started on a few household jobs... and rope the kids into helping too. I'm sure they won't mind.... And pigs can fly. YEAHhhh... NAH.
I'm on the warpath.
A certain person in this house seems to think 'tidying the bedroom' means throw everything in the wardrobe or on top of his bed. Ahh, no.
HE is now sulking, because after asking him numerous times over the past few days to tidy his room, and not seeing a tidy room, I've banned him from the XBox for the day.
BOYS ... well KIDS really.
Why do they think their throats have been cut when I ask them to do some jobs around the house???
Do they think the house keeps itself clean and tidy?
It may look like I do NOTHING all day, but in reality, I never walk from one room to another without picking something up, straightening something up, or cleaning it. It's a HABIT I had hoped to install in all my kids.
Waste of time.
I don't think there is one single kid I've raised who is tidy like me.
Maybe Mike is? I wouldn't know because I haven't seen his 'living space' where he lives now.
Sometimes I despair at how untidy my kids are.
Yaaa, I now have 9 knitting patterns in my Pattern Book.
And now... I'm starting on another block.
Such fun. No ... really it is!
I absolutely ♥love♥ sewing, and will never NOT sew, but I'm also loving knitting right now. *smiles*
Watch out though, I'm good at up and trying something else too.
In my lifetime so far, I have done:
Knitting, Sewing, Patchwork, Card Making, Pottery, Crochet, Painting, Lead Light Glass making, Woodturning, Embroidery, Felting, Rug Making & Chocolate Making.
DOES BAKING COUNT? LOL
I am sure there's a few more I'd like to add to that list eventually.
Have any of you done any craft type stuff that is totally different? I'd like to know.
FROGGY: You are lucky to only be picking up after ONE person.
NUMBER 5: Dream on sunshine.
KAREN: ummm ... none of those ideas tickle me fancy! *smiles*
TRACY: trouble with letting them have a pig sty for a room? They can't find stuff. Clothes don't get washed and they stink! AND they then start making a mess in other areas of the house too.
I am trying to teach them that living in a clean and tidy home is better than living in chaos.
Seems some lessons are never learnt.
End of Day: Well ... got a bit of housework done, not much, but better than none.
Also got one more knitted block done, and a 2nd half done.
I've started trying to do really intricate ones. I will show you the two latest tomorrow... cos I need something to post!
